Business Challenges

Managing numerous devices behind the application imposes a tough target on the application owners and network architects. The company operates 600 ADCs across 29 datacenters with more than four hundred user groups. Due to the end of life of the Cisco ACE load balancer series, an immediate migration to the F5 BIG-IP series was required. It was a challenging and risky operation to migrate Cisco Application Network Management (ANM) with error-free parsing of the roles to a new platform. The company wanted a solution that could.

  • Simplify migration of thousands of roles from Cisco ANM tool
  • Manage and monitor all these devices in a single platform
